CFC House in La - 1998 to 2008
The facility in La was the foundation from where the Chance
for Children project originated. For ten years it has
been a platform, where young and old, girls and boys, CFC children
and neighbours could meet and interact.
Additionally this house in La has been an important contact point
for the children on the streets. After
meeting the children on the streets and having initiated a first
contact, the CFC social workers have invited these children to a
meeting in La. This was where the children got their second
and vital impression of CFC and where the actual decision was made
whether a child can be invited to join CFC in the end. That is why
most CFC children have at least spent some time at the La facility
Today all these tasks are taken on at the newly
opened Drop-In Centre and the
office, which was established in 2007.
Children at the CFC house in La
For many years a Ghanaian family has been living inside the house
in La together with their own children and the former CFC street
children. In December 2008 the facility was returned to the family.
Many youths, who are integrated into the CFC project and who live
elsewhere with their families and friends, have met at the house in
La again and again for meetings, to mingle, to exchange jobs and to
work on their homework. At the moment only one girl is staying
at the house in La. With the help of CFC she goes to school.
